View Full Version : SideShow can't be serious about selling "half of Maul?"

I think Rebelscum's news and SideShow are pulling our legs. They can't seriously be selling the lower half of Darth Maul by itself! I'm sure an "action feature" of the figure may be that it splits in the center. Hasbro did that. But Sideshow selling it separately? Come-on!

They're probably poking fun at Master Replicas who offer half Maul's saber if you can't afford to buy the whole thing in one shot (not that many actually are buying it in halves that I've heard of).

In any case, whole or half, Darth Maul is NOT on my 12" wish list. Hasbro did quite nicely with him and I have 2 regular versions, 1 on the Sith Speeder, and 1 Masters-of-The-Dark-Side set with "Sebastian Shaw Vader 14" as a 2-pack. That's enough for me already.

Palpatine, depending upon which one they make, is the ONLY Sith Lord I'm interested in buying.

I'll assume the "pre-order" coming soon will be on Sat. - April 1st!
It would be a good April fools joke and a fun way to introduce the next 12". If this is the case, the real preorder would be announced at that time.
I am torn about a Darth Maul. I really like the character, but Hasbro's with some tweaking is pretty good. The electronic one, wearing the reg 12" cloak suits my display purposes.
I certainly would not by 2 halves and pay shipping twice!, but I think it's a joke!

I never understood the excitement about SideShow's 12" figures, they are overpriced & look nothing like the characters likeness (face), while the clothing & extras are spot on. I guess you guys don't have to worry about the face this time around & it's only half the price.:D

are you kidding me? If youre talking about the other lines of 12" figs then maybe, but regarding the SW and LOTR 12" line, Their likeness and quality is the best out there..... Id like you to show me better?

Look at this thread http://www.chinese-starwars.com/chineseforum/viewtopic.php?t=5844&sid=58910957928e6ba752c5af46575aed86 and tell me that isnt a good likeness.

This is puzzling. Probably a joke to poke fun at MR's 1/2 saber like Tycho said. Maybe at least this means the Sith are coming to SS. Or better yet the bad guys or villans like Jango, Boba etc. Though I've heard there won't be a 1/6 scale Grievous.

MR's April Fools joke is a month and a half old, but since the announcement of such was 2 days after these forums were closed, I guess it never got resolved. ;) They confirmed it was an April Fool's joke, but never announced a new figure afterwards.
